This is simply great.
Got a question, is this with full IC takeover? I'm not sure how you could get >20IC from annexing three 5 or 6 IC nations. If so, it's still a great start!

This is a good AAR, though I was a little disappointed that you took the Afghanistan-Sinkiang-Tibet route. Excluding afganistan, those lands were never persian. :/

Though I suppose you'll need the IC for now and later you can just puppet them as Persia probably would have.

CHAPTER 3: REVENGE!!!

soon after the conquest of arabia, the Great King/king of kings/emperor of emperors sought a way to gain a foothold in the balkans, since he noticed, that though the balkan nations were guarnateed by the big powers now, they were soon going to expire, leaving them alone, for persia to devour.
on february the 5th, the imperial persian navy, carrying a lone cavalry unit was spotted sailing towards albania. that poor nation did not even have a national army, and even though they were guaranteed by the italians, their lack of an army meant that they were going to be conquered even before their ambassadors could reach rome!

the amphibious assault:wacko: on tirana...
pic3aq8.jpg


and after just a couple of days of war(?) the albanians accepted subordinance to the new persian empire.:D

continued...

the annexetion of albania gave persia her first colony in the balkans and opened up an array options for her, none bigger than greece. that pesky nation which had defied persia since days of antiquity, and has been responsible for the downfall of the persian empire. now is the time to fulfill the dreams of darius and xerxes!!! but we must wait a bit, for she is protected by the big powers for the time being. we will utilize this time to build up our army. greece has got a far larger army than any of the enemies we have faced so for, both qualitatively and quantitatively.

meanwhile, a revolt occurs in the esrtwhile tibetan province of kagar. the revolt was suppressed shortly after, and the revolters beheaded in the public!!:mad:

at the dawn of new year, 1940, the Great King/king of kings/emperor of emperors notes with greatest delight that all the guarantees protecting greece have expired. now no one can stop us!!!!!:cool:

pic20vj4.jpg


war in europe gets bigger, germany now attacks denmark and norway.
pic22bw6.jpg


situation in the far east: china is almost defeated. the Great King/king of kings/emperor of emperors has decided that japan will make a good ally. we start influencing them, and also germany to prevent any future stand-off with them.
pic23qh7.jpg


7th april. our forces occupy key positions in greece. the enemy is all but finished. also, on this fateful day, the acropolis is burnt to ground to avenge the destruction of the persepolis.:mad:
pic24rk8.jpg


on the very same day, an emmisery arrives with the offer of unconditional surrender. we push the emmisery in a deep well, and accept their surrender:D
pic25fu8.jpg


city after city was destroyed, and thousands of citizens were killed after the persian victory. this is the price of defiance to persia!!!:mad:
pic260tj8.jpg


after the defeat of greece, we now have an european part to our empire!:D

glory to the mighty new persian empire and her children!!!

Would I be right in guessing that you'll wait for Vichy before attacking Syria and Lebanon and then launching a 3 pronged attack against Turkey?

And then of course it will be time to invade India, Iraq and all other Allied provinces!

a hint: the country i'll be attacking next has got substantially larger army than us, and it is not turkey:cool:

you see, i have just enough manpower to produce another infantry unit, two in the maximum, and i also have to think about reinforcements in case of war, so that is a big hindrence at this moment:(

i vote for option 1 but i have an alternative solution:
you will get little manpower from the worthless chinese territories you have a border now, so why not:
attack the turks when all the GOI's expire, by doing this,
you will have a connection between mainland persia and the european colonies
and get their manpower + you won't be needing convoys there
